The biggest thing would be the ability to use a revision control system to
patch pieces rather than the entire file.

The format is probably pretty obvious, too . . .

begin button myBtn
  owner: card buttonville of stack buttonland
  type: pushbutton
  label: "My Favorite button"
  loc:   823, 445
  width:  92
  height: 39

     on mouseup
         do something awesome
     end mouseup

end button myBtn
